Group A comprises Sports School Council A, Laksamana, Temburong and Pg Isteri Hjh Mariam Serasa Secondary School.
Group B is made up of Sultan Sharif Ali Secondary School, Sports School Council B, the second BIPA team and Kuala Lurah.
The tournament was open to all schools, clubs and districts but unfortunately there will be no teams representing the Tutong and Belait districts.
Temburong are the only team from outside of the Brunei-Muara district competing in the tournament.

The draws will either see Sports School Council A take on Pg Isteri Hjh Mariam Serasa Secondary School and Laksamana against Temburong or Sultan Sharif Ali Secondary School face Kuala Lurah and Sports School Council B against BIPA.
The format of the group stages will be in a best of three sets whereas the final matchup will be determined by a best of five sets.
